My Top 5 Favourite Brunch Spots in Melbourne
One of my favourite past-times is waking up approximately 9.00am spending 30 minutes formulating the perfect brunch-dress attire (usually involves a tight-jean, big chunky knit, high boot, fedora-situation) and then heading over to one of my favourite brunch place. Brunch is the perfect combination of happiness. With the perfectly smashed avo on toast, the roasted Italian coffee beans used to make my latte-art and the atmosphere of people confabulating in a casual carefree manner, it is here where my faith in humanity is so hopelessly restored. I don’t often meet a brunch spot I don’t like but if you are travelling through Melbourne, or perhaps you live in Melbourne and need some new brunch spot inspirations here is a list of my favourites.
ONE: Top Paddock – 658 Church St, Richmond VIC 3121
There is a reason why this is one of the most talked about cafes in Melbourne. It is simply the best. It is spacious, modern, the décor is divine and the food isn’t bad either! I recommend the ricotta hot cake with fresh berries or the eggs benedict…
TWO: The Hardware Societe – 120 Hardware St, Melbourne VIC 3000
With French and Spanish inspired cuisine and amazing coffee it is hard to go past this little hidden gem in the heart Melbourne’s CBD. I recommend the Spanish and chorizo baked eggs or for something lighter, the continental breakfast.
THREE: Hammer and Tong 412 – 412 Brunswick St, Fitzroy VIC 3065
This place easily secures its spot at number 3 based purely on the amazing doughnuts by Matt Forbes. Delicious doughnuts filled with all sorts of heaven plus cute, cosy décor plus phenomenal coffee is the perfect equation for Saturday morning solace.
FOUR: Three Bags Full – 60 Nicholson St, Abbotsford VIC 3065
Large industrial factory converted into a rustic café… dare I say more? Coffee is outstanding; food is on point and exactly what you are craving after a big Saturday night. I recommend the breakfast burger or the big breakfast.
FIVE: Cru – 916 Glenferrie Rd, Kew VIC 3101
Small rustic shop front with a beautiful European inspired courtyard. Delicious food with lots of variety. I love to go here when I am in the mood for a bite to eat as they have this beautiful brioche bun with egg and bacon for $6! Also their coffee is delicious and the waiters aren’t half bad either.
